As business and the disciplines of information technology (IT) become more and more intertwined, an MBA in IT is becoming an increasingly important qualification for the industry as a whole. IT professionals speak a very different language to most people, especially those in management positions (for managers in any industry are also famous for speaking their own language).

Most IT courses in an MBA program focus on IT management skills, but a select few schools, such as Berkeley Haas and Stanford GSB offer courses in programming to help less technically-minded MBA’s familiarize themselves with the more technological side of things.

For the most part, the skills learned within an IT specialization are almost identical to the skills learned in any other MBA specialization; the principal difference being that IT courses focus on industry specific subjects, such as supply chain management, entrepreneurship in technology, technology concepts, data modeling and, of course, some programming – and perhaps more specific areas, such as biotechnology and bio design.


IT careers are many and varied, especially with an MBA. The multifaceted nature of the IT industry carries over into its management roles, which can range from project management in software design and development to network and systems management.

For freshers, the basic salary starts from 7-8 lac per annum and for experienced candidates, it can go up to 20-25 lac per annum
